But it's likely your teen knows all about these apps -- even though they're mostly designed for adults.
According to the company's own estimates, about seven percent of Tinder's users are age 13 to 17.
However, ages aren't verified, making it easy for a teen to say she's older than 18 and an adult to say she's younger. You swipe right to "like" a photo or left to "pass." If a person whose photo you "liked" swipes "like" on your photo, too, the app allows you to message each other.
Meeting up (and possibly hooking up) is pretty much the goal.3. This adults-only app for online dating-style social networking boasts more than 200 million users worldwide.
The app (and the companion desktop version) identifies the location of a user by tracking his or her device's location and then matches pictures and profiles of potentially thousands of people the user could contact in the surrounding area. Badoo is definitely not for kids; its policy requests that no photos of anyone under 18 be posted.
